A substation to export electricity from a wind farm which has been opposed by Donald Trump is to go ahead.
Developers won an appeal against an Aberdeenshire council decision to reject the substation proposal.
The move comes five months after Mr Trump lost his Court of Session fight to block construction of the offshore wind farm.
The substation development at Blackdog is just a few miles from the American tycoon’s Menie estate and golf course.
Mr Trump stopped building work at the resort, including a potential second golf course, in February.
He said it would not resume until the proposals to build the wind turbines were off the table.
The tycoon had claimed the £230m wind farm development would spoil the view from his complex.
Those behind the Blackdog project have welcomed the decision, saying it was good news for the offshore wind industry.
Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited previously said it would be looking to connect to the grid in 2017.
